RSS and LongHorn

July 18, 2005

The IEBlog states that RSS, or the syndication feature on most web sites, will be an integral part of Microsoft's upcoming OS, codenamed 'LongHorn.'

RSS, though a distant relative of web sites, could offer web standards a significant push. If RSS really booms, its styling counterpart to CSS, XSLT, may not be far behind. One of web standard's mantra "Separate Presentation from Content," will be put to the forefront in developer's minds.

What I find weird here is, indirectly, Microsoft is contributing (although very distantly) to the Web Standards cause.
